What does the company do well?
Sonic wall has A LOT of options and security features that gives you utter control of your network in so many ways. It is impossible to say that "you do not have control" of your network when you have a sonicwall. One of my favorite features is the ease of use for the content filter. The content filter comes with different filter options which you can activate during special times/days and pinpoint who and what device can do what and they've made that fairly easy with sonicwall. Many of the other options are somewhat straight forward and offer deep customization options but sonicwall is not an easy plug and play device and will require some experience.
What does the company not do well?
Port forwarding on a sonicwall is almost an absolute nightmare. Many times it will throw you in a maze like scenario, searching for the correct options to implement into your network. Sonicwall definitely needs a better user interface as the interface that is currently created is in my opinion mediocre.
What about the company do you wish you had known before purchasing?
Make sure you choose a firewall device/software that fits your needs in terms of user interface. Sonicwall gives you A LOT of options but there are many times where you do not need this sort of complexity and it won't be fair to the company to offer something so thorough and extensive, but to be rated bad because a new user experience isn't what was expected from an average consumer.
